Amazon Prime Video
There is a huge selection for kids on Amazon Prime including Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, L.O.L Surprise!, and so so much more. The parental controls offered by Prime are there to help you regulate what your kids watch and make sure they do not watch any inappropriate content.

Netflix hosts children shows like SpongeBob SquarePants, Miraculous, Yo-Kai Watch, the list is almost endless. Netflix has great ways and options to control the content your children can watch. You can create a regular profile and use a PIN code to set viewing restrictions for certain titles, or you can easily create a profile specifically for the kids.
